Another tall appointment for Casademont. After defeating Gernika at home, last weekend, in their most recent performance, the Aragonese team visits Barcelona to face one of the most impressive teams in the Women’s League: faces Barcelona (19.00, Aragón TV), a team that presents the same balance as the Zaragozans in the current course (8 wins in the 12 games played). The azulgranas, yes, are especially reliable in the heat of their fans, where they have carried out all their matches.
In this way, The Catalan squad has played six matches in their fiefdom: they beat Spar Girona (70-67), a solid contender for the league title, and also beat Cadí La Seu (47-42), Araski (60-52), Bembibre (65-60), IDK Euskoten (80-66) and Tenerife (60-55). In addition, outside of Barcelona they beat Leganés (49-69) and Durán Maqunaria Ensino (69-74), while they bent the knee on the court at Bizkaia (79-79), Estudiantes (66-61), Valencia Basket (91-34) and Perfumerías Avenida (67-54).
Despite the indisputable potential of Barcelona, Casademont goes to the appointment convinced of his options. In fact, she is offering an outstanding competitive capacity this season, in the Women’s League and in the Eurocup, and she has enough arguments to prevail over any rival and in any setting.
In the domestic tournament, Casademont is currently ranked third in the table, and is only one win away from the lead. In their most recent match, Carlos Cantero’s team won an important victory on the Gernika court (59-63), against another rival installed in the heights, again with Keisha Gatling as the main offensive reference. The pivot joined the Aragonese squad on December 9 and has adapted immediately: she has been the team’s top scorer in their three games played. Thus, the American billed 19 points against Leganés and 12 against Gernika, in addition to having contributed 18 against BBC Grengewald in the continental competition.
Stonecutter will not be able to field Aishah Sutherland, who continues to recover from a fibrillar tear and he could no longer perform in the meeting last weekend; while Leo Fiebich is undoubtedly his most reliable marksman. The German was injured with her selection at the end of last November and since then she has not returned to the slopes. In addition, the team from Zaragoza arrives in Barcelona physically diminished, after the fatigue accumulated in a month full of matches between the Women’s League and the Eurocup.
On the part of the azulgranas, His main threat is the Canadian Ruth Hamblin, who bills 12.7 points per game and is also the eighth most productive player in the competition. (17.7 rating credits per match). She is also the fifth best rebounder, with 8.6 rebounds per crash, with a notable incidence in attack sacks (3). Another of Barcelona’s dangers will be Marta Canella, who distributes 3.5 assists per duel.
